Luggage scales
Each airline flying to Cameroon impose a different baggage allowance. It is important that every traveler comply with those rules under threat of being required to pay excess baggage fees that can be prohibitive. It is therefore recommended to weigh your luggage before you get to the airport. However, it is possible to weigh them on the balances available at check-in counters in order to lighten them if necessary.
Cabin baggage
Each company has its own baggage policy. Most of the time, luggage weighing more than 32kg is forbidden. In addition, the maximum size of luggage should not exceed 158cm (height + width + length). Any off-size baggage may incur additional charges or be refused by the company. 
Like baggage traveling in the hold, cabin baggage must be of a maximum size and weight. Some passengers try to board other items than those validated at check-in.  They expose themselves to the refusal of embarkation of these baggage or to the payment of excess baggage fees in addition to delaying the takeoff to the detriment of all the travelers.
Last minute tickets
Passengers who have not had the time to buy their tickets or have missed their flights have the option to purchase a ticket at the airport (at generally higher rates). Correspondents of different airlines can offer these services.
To ensure the comfort of its passengers and visitors, Douala Airport offers a medical service for health emergencies. Information at the reception.
Baggage disputes
In case of loss, theft or damage related to baggage carried by travelers, you must go on arrival at the baggage claim counter located after the baggage carousel.
